1970 Plymouth Road RunnerIt's going to be harder to find a meaner example of Mopar muscle than this. With the big 440 V8 under the hood, this one earns its bold red streak inside and out. And while this 1970 Plymouth Road Runner is one of the fiercest birds around, it doesn't lose that charm we all love.
High Impact colors are the kind of thing we all look for on a Mopar. So to have a Road Runner finished in a color close to Tor-Red is already quite alluring. This is a more modern respray where the bold red has a desirable shine. And this is not the only part of the paint package that excites. The matte black triple hood stripe pays tribute to true Mopar muscle and emphasizes the power bulge. And the yellow Road Runner graphics on each side remind you about how this coupe can leave everyone else in the dust. Wide chrome bumpers, fender vent trim, large dual exhaust tips, and proper Mopar road wheels complete a package that's both bright and aggressive.
There's a fun style inside where it takes the exterior red and golden side graphics and creates a full custom interior theme. Not only do you get red seats with gold piping, but also the door panels and headliner were done to coordinate. There's a true classic style here, right down to the working AM radio and correct BEEP! BEEP! horn. But what you'll really love is the driver-oriented feeling. Front bucket seats, a thin/grippy three-spoke sports steering wheel, sporty round factory gauges, and auxiliary readout under the dash make this a road-ready classic.
In 1970, the base V8 for these Road Runner was the 383 cubic-inch unit. That's a fine motor, but it was no match for the 440 available for a lucky few machines. So it's great to have the engine bay upgraded to the top dog V8. The Coyote Duster graphic on the air grabber and Mopar orange on the valve covers are some cool classic details. Plus, this has a proper four-barrel carburetor and an upgraded Edelbrock intake. It's a serious power package that makes a great growl out of the newer dual exhaust. And it's easy to harness this enhanced V8 thanks to the stout Torqueflite 727 three-speed automatic transmission and power steering.
The horn might still go "Beep! Beep!" but the rumble this one makes going down the road means it's not for a kid's show. It's a bold and powerful true muscle Mopar. Call today!!!
